Imagine

Imagine the up-swell of goodwill to be heaped upon the first large company to announce that they are going to reel in Off-shoring of jobs. Imagine the excitement of other companies joining in to announce they will hire new employees for second and third shifts at office buildings all over the USA. Imagine the economic and national PROFIT gained by putting Americans back to work simply by acknowledging that the experiment in cost cutting didn't really work.

'Biblical' floods hit Queensland and leave tens of thousands homeless | World news | The Observer

"Officials have warned householders to beware of venomous snakes and killer crocodiles that are threatening to invade flooded homes and businesses.

About 200,000 people have been affected so far as at least six river systems experienced a flood surge following Australia's wettest spring on record.

More than 1,000 people are staying in evacuation centres with that number expected to rise to 4,000 by the middle of the week.

Ironically, the huge rains have come after prolonged years of drought in the normally dry continent-sized country."
